Peermusic UK signs Nigerian artist and songwriter Larry Gaaga

Nigerian artist, songwriter and producer Larry Gaaga has been officially signed to Peermusic UK on an exclusive global music publishing deal.

The company will administer Larry Gaaga’s entire back catalogue and future works, as well as provide A&R services in support of his new music. The transaction was managed and negotiated for Gaaga by Kimani Moore Entertainment.

Nigel Elderton, president, Europe & MD, Peermusic UK, Ralph W Peer and Mike Sault, head of A&R of Peermusic UK announced this new deal.

The deal with peermusic includes songs such as Low feat. Wizkid; Doe feat. Davido; Baba Nia feat. Burna Boy, 2Baba, & D’Banj; Wonderful feat. Wande Coal & Sarkodie; and Tene feat. Flavour, as well as all of the songs from the Living In Bondage OST.

“Larry has already accomplished an impressive amount in very little time since he began focusing on his career as a writer and performer, and we’re very excited about what’s next for him. Both Nigeria and the larger African market are priorities for us so this was an important deal to get done,” said Ralph W Peer.
